TOGA COARE soundings from Tarawa


This dataset consists of sounding data from Tarawa, Kiribati (WMO 91610). Soundings were taken twice per day (00 and 12 UTC) during the IOP. Some soundings were also taken during the EMP. UCAR/JOSS conducted no quality control on these data. This dataset includes pressure, temperature, dew point, and relative humidity taken at 10 second vertical intervals. No wind data were collected at this site. Refer to the station README file for details. NOTE: This dataset has been updated (5/2/2002) with corrected data for the humidity measurement errors of the Vaisala RS 80 radiosonde(Wang et al 2002). Please see the README for details.
